Anywhere you can find vintage. There's so many different types though! Coveralls, painters coveralls, jumpsuits, flight suits etc etc

while we're on the topic, this apc jumpsuit is beauty, love the color and the linen/wool blend sounds great.

looking for a decent quality plain white hoodie (or minimally branded). most of the usual brands either have heather or navy but no white.

American Apparel has some. It's usually possible to find wholesale sellers on ebay for ~$30, or at least it was 2 years back when I bought an AA sweatshirt.

Fair warning that American Apparel sizing is absolutely all over the place. I literally range from XS to L across shirting, sweats, and tees.

How long does it usually take for something to come in from Japan, and is it common or rare for sellers on Rakuten to give tracking info?

I just placed my first order last night, and while it said I'd get a follow-up email to confirm shipping, shipping was free so I'm not sure what to expect!

Was reading the Stylesight interview with bobbin and katy, and bobbin brought up the Chinese brand Red Cloud and I was wondering if any of you have any recs for interesting Chinese brands/designers. (Or any suggestions for where I can start looking?)

I'm not necessarily looking for things to purchase, but since I generally have relatives coming to and from China on a regular basis, I think it would be an interesting opportunity to explore since I've always associated China with knockoffs and shoddy clothes bought off Taobao.

Any recommendations for a tailor in Los Angeles?

I usually go to Seang but now that I've learned about about tailoring, it seems that she/her husband are more "average" tailors (i.e. they only measure one leg for hemming).

I'm not a fan of Gary's. I had him reverse some buttons on a coat and he stitched through the pocket.

Does anyone know anything about the brand wizzard? I've found pics of some of their stuff floating around tumblr, but that's about it.

Best sub-150 thickish wool crewneck sweater for wear in the fall for wear by itself for everyday casual wear but also presentable for bizcaz with an OCBD? Thanks.

Uniqlo linen shirts are fine for the price. They usually hit $20 at some point if you can wait. It's not gonna blow you away or anything but I don't know of anything better at that price.

There's this Asian male fashion photographer/model I keep thinking of but I can't recall his name. He's bald, I think hes from New York, and his outfits are mainly a mix between streetwear and menswear. I think he skates as well? He often wears nice beanies to cover his bald head. Anybody know who I'm talking about?

Does anyone know about these Undercover jeans? I've emailed the seller, but they haven't replied yet and I can't find any photos of people wearing them. Pretty much, I've always assumed that the cut out knees have been relined with some other black material to fill them in. However, just today when I was about to put my bid in it occurred to me that maybe what I'm looking at is actually the inside of the back of the leg. They're from AW09.

What boots go with black denim that aren't Doc Martens, or heritage-y (black Red Wings, Aldens, etc)?
